Google Maps will soon let you share your real-time location

Here’s some good news for fans of the long-dead Google service called Latitude. Google Maps is soon getting real-time location sharing abilities. This new feature will be rolling out worldwide to all of its users on Android and iOS.

When you get access to it, you’ll be able to quickly share your current whereabouts with anyone you want, for as long as you want. This works for trips too, so you can basically share your progress on your way to your friend’s house, with an ETA included. It’s all explained neatly in the promotional video below, which focuses on a surprise birthday party.
